hi my name is alex, i'm 11, i live and newport beach and i just experienced the biggest earthquake i have ever felt. my lights started flickering in my room and i almost fell to the floor. Lot of shaking in Newport Beach and feeling after shocks already!!!! Biggest one I ever felt!!!! im in disney land and they have closed all of the rides and are expecting them now There's no way that that was only a 5.8 earthquake!!!! I live in Temple City, Ca and I was almost knocked out of my chair. It was like I moved sideways (east) and then moved west.BY FEET. Yikes! I thought that a semi hit my house, My cats were doing somersaults It was quite a strong jolt here at the base of the Hollywood hills and lasted for about 30 seconds. Cannot use cell phone, all lines tied up. I've lived through three sizable quakes out here and this was the strongest I've felt.
